Law Report – The Rise of TMT Law
Laurence Simons and Vacancysoft
In this report we examine the impact of technology for lawyers and how demand for legal services is changing. Our key findings are:
- The technology industry is continuing to grow, resulting in demand for TMT lawyers increasing, where in-house hiring specifically is up significantly.
- Technology businesses increasingly are forming outside of the South East, resulting in greater hiring for TMT lawyers regionally.
- Additionally new regulations coming into place are resulting in data privacy becoming one of the fastest growing areas for hiring for lawyers.
